Our History

Energy Balance and Integration, LLC is a company combining technical and field experience spanning over the past 42 years.  Our combined staff and resources have been providing testing and balancing services in New Mexico since 1976 and has had expanded services to Colorado, Eastern Arizona, and Western Texas.  EB&I prides itself on setting up commercial buildings to the upmost comfort and accuracy and has been doing so with pride and honorablyy for decades.

In 1976, Alan Weitzel a new mechanical engineer on the scene formed a company in test and balance, Energy Balance Inc. It started as him working the field along side a couple other hard working men with a goal to set the bar in test and balance, air and water. He took on apprentice, Tony Kocurek, just 18 at the time willing to learn to with the same work ethic and dedication to providing system wide balance and solutions. They were problem solvers and and embarking a journey in an industry that was was still so new with fundamental principles in physics. Before long this small company had grown and its reputation for success a long with it.

In 2004, it was time for a change of hands. Alan made the change into retirement and retired the name Energy Balance Inc. along with it. Long since apprenticeship, Tony was the leading man and continued the the Energy Balance reputation for excellence with the new company Energy Balance & Integration.  

Focused on moving forward in an industry that does not stand still, Tony and the team at Energy Balance & Integration have consistently delivered the upmost in quality test and balance. Often thinking outside of the box, Tony has encouraged and fostered a team that doesn't just read numbers. Our team understands air and water in a way that makes it easy to solve difficult problems and produce a system that fits the engineered design.

Check out what we are doing to innovate our industry as well and the team that is doing it.

  • Fire Life Safety and the safety of New Mexico and Beyond

Saving lives. EB&I has continuously been working to bring about change concerning fire life safety regulations. In 2014, EB&I aided in introducing legislation that would allow a working group to convene and resolve matters concerning fire code and mandatory fire life safety inspections of fire dampers, smoke dampers and smoke control systems. This is an area that truly saves lives. In April of 2018, owner of EB&I, Anthony Kocurek spoke at the ICB/TABB convention in Sacramento, California in the subject of what we can expect in the mechanical HVAC world concerning fire life safety. Energy balance does provide fire life safety testing, quotes available upon request.
